According to TMZ, a dog walker was out with Waldo in New York City when he abruptly broke away from his leash and ran into traffic. Though Turner and Jonas haven’t yet released a public statement, an unnamed source said that the pair was “torn up” over the loss and went to see a therapist. They reportedly reported the incident to the police on Friday, two days after Waldo’s death.
Turner and Jonas adopted Waldo in April 2018. He was their second dog; their first, Porky Basquiat, was from Waldo’s same litter. Porky was a gift from Jonas to Turner, and both pups have been prominent members of the Turner-Jonas family. The dogs even posed with Jonas for People’s Sexiest Man Alive photo shoot.
